Sophie Update/Thanksgiving

For the past several weeks, Sophie has been more irritable than before and not her 'normal self.'  We have been working closely with her palliative care nurse and health care team at Children's Memorial Hospital to figure out what might be causing this and to help keep her comfortable.  We have adjusted some medications and made other small changes and she seems to be doing a little better the past few days.

Sophie has also started music therapy which she loves!  Her music therapist, Rachel, is wonderful and Sophie loves watching her play guitar.

Sophie also had some visitors for Thanksgiving:
Uncle Brad brought his guitar!
Nonnie, Carla, cousin Zoe, Aunt Jenny
Pretty ladies
Sophie loves Zoe's hair
Sophie can't get enough of Brad playing his guitar

8 Months Old!

On November 12th, Sophie turned 8 months old!  It's been difficult some days to get out, so we celebrated her birthday in parts with singing & cake, Shedd Aquarium, and a local botanical garden on different days... here are the pics!

Time flies by... can't believe she is already 8 months old!

She approved
Someone is very interested in the fish!
